    I have a '13 MBA with the 128GB drive. I cannot afford to dump the ~10gb (!) of iPhone photos there.

    What I do have is a plethora of external drives, including a TM drive.

    Is there a way I can back up my iPhone photos to my Time Machine drive, but not the MBA internal drive? Is there a way to streamline or automate the process?

    Set up iPHoto with your iPHoto library on the TM drive.
    then import your iPhone photos into iPhoto
